Subject: So painful
The story was slow but I just couldn't get past the horrible roles and dialogue given to the black actors. It was of some entertainment value but more as a time capsule of the injustice of bad roles given to minorities.

that in the 21st century there are still bigoted asses like doowopbop in existence. Oh well, what do you expect from a California dj who makes his money performing karaoke while he still lives in his mother's house.

Subject: Amazing drums, lousy clichés.
Amazing! This drumming is the ancestor of "grounation" or "nyabinghi" drumming, which formed the basis for Ska and other Jamaïcan music. The earlier anthropological recordings of that kind of music only go back to the 50's, if I am not mistaken. Does anyone know who the group was? Could anyone help me locate a copy of this? Otherwise the film is the usual pile of colonial clichés...
